will feel it first, but this storm spreads inland a lot. >> reporter: it does. atlantic city, obviously is going to feel it. one of the first places. once that storm continues on, all of the way to ohio, western pennsylvania, even canada. in atlantic city, they're taking it very seriously, some of the businesses have already been boarding up. only emergency vehicles coming all of the way through. other than that, we're really not going to imagine much more than the storm surge. that's the biggest concern here in atlantic city. in 34 years of legalized gambling this is what has happened, shutdown of casinos three times. irene being the last time. we didn't hit that hard enough, right at the coast, from jersey shore up through new york city, long island, you get the bigger numbers. because of the shape of the land, it's going to help that southwest to -- southeast to the northwest flow. other spots will have a surge. we're talking 60 to 80 miles an hour winds in that red area, boston, pittsburgh is included. washington, d.c., even. the purple area all of the way through maine, 40 to 60-mi
of times. this is the first time i've done one in new york city, and it's in a lot of ways a different animal. you learn how fragile a big city can be, a big strong city like this. it's just different, and that surge, as i said, was really something to behold. >> yeah. >> scott cohn, thank you very much. see you later. >>> coming up next, hurricane sandy hitting long island's massapequa hard tonight turning streets into rivers. more on how the storm is ravaging the northeast and how refineries are being affected as well. we'll be back in two minutes. >>> welcome back. sandy has closed several of the region's major refineries. here's a look at the process to reopen these fuel centers. cnbc's sharon epperson has more. >> reporter: getting a refinery back online after a full shutdown due to a hurricane or major storm can be a lengthy multi-phase operation. the first step, returning evacuated personnel to the refinery, could take a few days depending on conditions and surrounding areas. once on location, the crew evaluates the storm damage, like flooding or downed power lines. if the power
in zone a and there are hundreds more in shelters across the city. first i want to thank those who are taking quick action to ensure their own safety and to make it easier for the rest of us. i want to thank all the people that are here working, they are volunteers and doing a phenomenal job and i would like to give everybody a little bit more of an update on the city's preparation for hurricane sandy right now. the hurricane -- earlier today i signed an executive order for t the mandatory evacuation of homes and businesses in -- the low lying coastal areas of the city. to reiterate what are the low-lying areas, zone a included manhattan beach along the east river in brooklyn, all of the rock aways and also hamilton beach and broad channels in queens, all of the coastline in staten island, city island, and another patch of the south bronx, battery park city, and stretches of the the west side water front and of the lower east side village in manhattan. there are two maps on display there, which we have and which we're trying to get. which show the areas as zone a, but the bottom li
the first floors in ocean city. talking about the response, we expect to get an update from ocean city officials about 10:00 this morning on the condition and the efforts underway. already this morning we have seen ocean city police and members of the national guard driving along the boardwalk to check out the conditions and to make sure nobody is out here this morning. that is the big concern, for safety and for flooding out here. talking about that in general, we have mandatory evacuations for areas south of this point where we are. 8:00 last night is when there were told to leave by. if you of not been able to leave by now, you have to stay in place. they've closed the bridge from 50 to be able to get in and out. if you are still here, you'll have to stay through the duration of the storm. there were voluntary evacuations for low-lying areas along the delmarva peninsula for people concerned about flooding. we have seen areas boarded up for a precaution for what will come our way. the big concern is we are already starting to see what we're seeing during the height of irene. and we a
a confirmed death. the first in a city. a man in flushing queens when a tree crashed into his house and crushed him. ida of our new york station wnbc, is in lower manhattan. ida, what can you tell us? >> reporter: chris, we're maybe a couple blocks away from the world trade center site and there was significant flooding out here for much of the evening. i'd say from maybe 8:00 up until -- well, right this very moment. check out the flooding here. these are the northbound lanes of the highway. if i walk back here, i'm probably in the deepest area where we are standing, maybe about ten inches of water here. if we look up north, it's a little dark and hard to see and it looks like there's two feet of water in that direction. all in all, the good news is, we've seen a lot of receding. maybe an hour ago this entire area was completely underwater. i would say half an hour ago, i want to show you this cardboard box that barely survived the storm. this was underwater half an hour ago and that's a good 50 feet from where the water is right now. things are starting to recede. at the height of
at seaside heights. simon hobbs is in for sue herera today. >>> but first, to the aftermath of the storm and president obama's visit to the new jersey coastline. kayla tausche is live in atlantic city. kayla? >> reporter: hi, tyler. we just saw air force one fly right over us and headed likely toward the atlantic city airport. we have tons of residents in atlantic city who turned out very excited, very rambunctious to seat president. it is the first day of sun after days of wind and rain and of course the wreckage of sandy here is evident as a place that used to be home to more of a residential part of the boardwalk. residents would fish off of it and stroll here. not so much the business part of the boardwalk but the wreckage you're seeing here, nonetheless. here in atlantic city the cleanup is just in its early, early stages. some residents who chose to stay behind getting power. i spoke to one resident today who finally got power, got a pump to his basement and started trying to pump out water that had flooded his basement. he was moved to tears when he started talking about watching
storm sandy. we are also getting new tape in, this is feeding in now, wtvi out of atlantic city. first aerials of the boardwalk, of course the famous boardwalk, sections that were washed away. you can see the boats that are just tossed about there, the homes are right there on the water. and just remnants of what the boardwalk used to be, as it just goes out into the water. 11,000 people spend the night in red cross shelters in that area. but this is one of the first aerials that we're seeing from the famous boardwalk out of atlantic city. ali velshi was in atlantic city last night and it was extraordinary to see just how quickly the water had risen and when he was doing those reports, got up one point to his waist. it really was a city that, for the most part, people hunkered down. he did not see a lot of people out on the streets. it was pretty much abandoned. in the light of day, you're just beginning to get a sense of the damage and devastation that that atlantic city area has experienced, particularly the boardwalk area, and the commercial area that was abandoned last night. for t
the storm process in a few minutes. first well say hello to ava marie at ocean city. you saw the sustained winds up to 85 miles an hour so you could easily see gusts close to 60 this morning. >> yes. interesting enough, i was looking at the report and they are getting gusts close to 60 miles an hour. we are on the pool deck of our hotel and the winds are variable because we're getting them affected by the building. they are gusting mostly out of the north but check the waves. they are incredible. you can see that barrier, that fence. that is where we were standing yesterday and now the water is coming in there heading through high tide. we are not able to stand on the coast. it is an incredible situation. the rain has let up a little bit but the winds are going strong. have more rain. now out to annapolis where kim dacey is. how are things going there? >> good morning. here we are seeing steady rain that we have been seeing all morning and the wind is picking up. seeing more gusts. there was a little bit of calm between the gusts but we are seeing more gusts and rain goes horizontal. we wi
light we'll get a first look. a record 13-foot storm surge overflowed the city's historic water flood, flooding the financial area. and the subway. the city's mass transit system, schools, and stock exchange remain closed today. rob and paula, back to you. >> scott goldberg here on a wet and storm-weary new york. thanks a lot. >>> parts of new jersey remains under water after that monstrous storm surge along the coast. >>> sandy made landfall, powerful surf crashed into atlantic city's famous boardwalk, washing away a 300-yard section of it. floodwaters also filled up along towns, along the popular jersey shores. they plunged into darkness. abc's steve is in the thick of things. >> reporter: the water started to overtake the dunes. at that point we felt we had to move our trucks because the water was coming in onto the streets, not just in the areas right by the beach, but actually flooding some of the city's streets. so we decided to move a half mile away and rebase. we were broadcasting and all of a sudden the water crept up behind us there. >> now, the national guard and other fire
of some areas. i am also ordering all of the city's public schools be closed on monday. first as to the evacuations. we are ordering this evacuation for the safety of approximately 375,000 people who live in these areas. if you live in these areas, you should leave them this afternoon. >> with just over a week before the election, but president obama and republican challenger mitt romney have scaled back campaigning as hurricane sandy approaches. the two campaigns have cancelled a combined 17 events and suspended fundraising emails in states that lie in the storm's path. on saturday, president obama rallied supporters in new hampshire, where he criticized romney's record as governor of the neighboring massachusetts. >> during governor romney's campaign down there, he promised the same thing he is promising now. he said he would fight for jobs and middle-class families. but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefit 278 of the wealthiest families in the state, and then he raised taxes and fees on middle-class families to the tune of $750 millio
stock their first two-day closure ine- over a century. emergency generators provided the power. most of lower manhattan is still in the dark. an unusual event in the city that never sleeps. >> you look uptown, and you see lights. you look downtown and it is completely black. i was driving with a partner of mine, and i said that i do not think we will ever see something like this again. >> it is scary seeing new york like this, but i am happy to be alive. >> a little confusion, but it is still not so bad. you can get around and maneuver a little bit, and that is it. >> sandy also took out the subway line, which carries 1/3 of new york's workforce each day. flooded tunnels and miles of tracks will need to be cleared, but it was a new jersey shoreline that took the brunt of the super storm's wrath -- houses, boats, and boardwalks along the ocean have been destroyed. the storm is now largely dissipated over the great lakes. it is still dumping heavy snow and rain from north carolina to west virginia, creating hazardous road conditions for motorists. >> we are joined now by our washington
as well. he's on the streets of your city. first of all, mayor, what precautions have you taken right now? how are the folks in atlantic city holding up? >> wolf, good evening. we're trying to get through this and do the best that we can to cope with a very difficult situation. we have been successful in getting some of our residents to heed the warnings that we presented to them friday and yesterday to evacuate the barrier island and move to higher ground. unfortunately, not as many folks as we would have liked have taken heed to that warning. back during the last catastrophic event that we experienced, that being hurricane irene, we achieved a 98% evacuation rate. but for whatever reason, this time, we haven't reached that number yet. we think we're somewhere having evacuated several thousand people. but we still have too many people in atlantic city. that creates a very uncomfortable situation for all of our emergency responders and officials are still trying to do the best we can to get people out of harm's way. >> mayor, ali velshi is on the streets of atlantic city. right now, the w
this morning, at fist light, we'll be getting the first look at the immense damage from this historic flooding. a record 13-foot storm surge overflowed the city's historic waterfront, flooding the financial district and the subway. the city's mass transit system, schools and stock exchange remain closed today. rob and paula, back to you. >> scott goldberg here, in a wet and storm-weary new york. thanks a lot. >>> and parts of new jersey remain underwater this morning after that monstrous storm surge along the coast. >> sandy made landfall. the powerful surf crashed into atlantic city's famous boardwalk, washing away a 300-yard section of it. floodwaters also filled up along towns along the jersey shore. they plunged into darkness. steve portnoy is in the thick of things at point pleasant beach. >> reporter: the water started to overtake the dunes. at that point we felt we had to move our truck because the water was coming in on to the streets. not just in the areas right by the beach, but actually flooding some of the city streets. so, we decided to move about a half-mile away and rebase. we w
with jim axelrod in new york city. >> reporter: the first thing we can report on this tuesday morning is that high tide has come here in battery park lower manhattan, and the water out there, the hudson river, new york harbor where it's mixing has not reached the wall has not come over. and that was a big concern here for emergency management officials as the next high tide after hurricane sandy had made landfall. the big concern was whether or not there would be another breach. there has not been this morning. as i say, good news. why? that water, having come over last night, record storm surge of nearly 14 feet. that is what caused the bulk of the problems in manhattan. there are about a quarter million people without power in manhattan. why? because that water came over the wall and got into electrical substations and power stations and knocked out service. so all of new york island south of 34th street is without power right now. the subway systems in new york are flooded out. they could take as much as a week to be back online. it could take as much as a wee
hours since the damaged crane first started dangling 90 stories in new york city. these are live pictures you are looking at. we have obtained this video showing yesterday's collapse at the construction site of the luxury 157 skyscraper as it's called. she has got more of what's going to on. what do we know about the safety record of this crane that seems to be hanging there? >> it is hanging precariously. directly behind me and it's about a thousand feet off the ground. you can imagine how terrified people on the ground were. having said that, cnn has learned that this very construction site has experienced some problems in the past. the city issued at least two stop work orders in the past couple of months. one for leaking hydraulic fluid and another for defective wire rope and an improper runway platform. they were eventually fully rescinded but it took about a week in each case for that to happen. they did confirm that the documents are correct. >> what did you think when you heard the loud boom? >> i thought it was a gunshot or a bomb. i immediately went to the window. when
is going up in a helicopter and we're going to get our first pictures here this afternoon. we've had reports from point pleasant beach where the beach was essentially taken and spread through the town and then we've heard from atlantic city and seen where the boardwalk was ripped up and so forth. in the middle is long beach island and i haven't seen any reports from long beach island. what happened there is they were on the side of the storm where the water was pushed from the ocean in across the shoreline. farther south, down into maryland and delaware, much of the coast where they had some damage, they didn't have that hard push of water at high tide like good parts of the jersey shore did. so we're very, very fearful there and also on the south shore of long island. we also haven't seen that. so there is much more to learn about just those two areas let alone other areas spread around the northeast. >> and as you point out, the high winds, continuing high winds, and gusts are going to make it even that much longer before we get power restored to all of those people. >> that's righ

in the wind, on 57th street, picture this, the stock exchange is closed, for the first time since 911, the routes into and out of the city are cut off. we have a lot of ground to cover here this evening, knowing close to a million potential viewers can't see us right now, as it is because of power outages, we want to start with our hurricane specialist at the weather channel. meteorologist brian norcross, we should be coming to it on top of atlantic city, right? it look is a little to the south, over new jersey, looks like it is over the coastline, you called it rit, this is a freakish storm in any number of ways, including the lowest central pressure ever recorded for a landfall storm. all right, let's look at the radar, i'll try to point out for you where the center is, the radar echo is kind of the lower end of landfall, there is cape may, ocean city, new jersey, right in there. very, very strong winds right there coming in. but that is only one tiny little part of the vitamsystem, becaus there is the magnitude of it as it extends all the way upbringing near-hurricane force gusts i
. i am ordering that all the city's public schools be closed on monday. first, as to the evacuation zone. let me stress we are ordering this evacuation for the caste of 375,000 people who live in these areas. if you live in these area, you should should leave them this afternoon. low-lying area, zone "a," including coney island, manhattan beach and red hook and otheriars in brooklyn. all of the rockaways and hamilton beach special broad channel in queens, almost all the coastal areas of staten island, city ooh land, throtion throtion -- throgs neck and battery park city and stretches of the waterfront and the lower east side and manhattan. do you want to find out if you live in zone "a"? call 311 or go to the city's web site and type in your address or give your address on the operator. they will tell you. if you live in one of the 26 public housing developments in zone "a," be aware that all elevators there will shut down at 7:00 p.m. tonight. so if really is important that you leave... this afternoon. also, the mta has announced they will start shutting down service to subways at

somewhere safe. sandy is coming. the question is, how will new york city handle it? the big apple has been shut down to its core. lower manhattan looks like a ghost town. wall street will be closed for consecutive days because of weather for the first time since the 1800s in a place where you have to look up to see where many live, skyscrapers are a concern. wind speeds on the ground are half those on the top floors. sometimes forcing buildings to sway. >> the further up you live the more reason you should close your drapes and just stay away from windows. >> reporter: watch this bath water slosh in a brookline high-rise in gusts of barely 40 miles an hour. half what's expected from sandy. at ground zero still under construction special precautions as teals have worked for days to disassembly a mashed down piece of machinery. fears heightened by that ten-ton steel arm dangling from a high-rise building. but the main threat from sandy is storm surge. not just flooding, surge effect hits like a liquid fist powered by 80-mile-an-hour winds. sandy brings potentially an extra 6 to 12 feet of sa
first and get rid of the why. robert: back to you in the city of. melissa: you see the panel -- the tunnel completely filled with water. ashley: that is critical to the transportation story here. no one can get in or out of manhattan with transportation shutdown and the roads a mess. very difficult, unable to give any timetable but essentially more damage. let's go to new jersey talking of damage and assessing what sandy did. two million customers without power. jeff flock was in point pleasant beach in the teeth of the storm yesterday and today surveying the damage. jeff: had quite a ride. take a look. plenty of water. this street was like a river last night. is covered with water as well as stand. follow me this way, you will see there is sand all over the city streets in point pleasant beach. the other problem even though they cleared ocean drive up here, natural gas leaks, water systems still running, electricity out, natural gas leaked, report of one in white sands oceanfront hotel across the street. that is what they are doing right here, trying to shut that off because
, and we keep that first and foremost in our minds. >> danny, we always think of you as a new york city guy but you have operations in philly and boston. has the damage there been much different than right along the new jersey/new york coastline? >> well, so far we have none in boston, just to be clear, but we do have two in miami and this was a rare hurricane storm that seemed to avoid miami. so those guys are good. washington, d.c., we're going to check in with them. as i said, i've been hampered myself just because we have no internet and i was able to find a land line to call in to you guys, but we realize we're in a day and age where cell phones -- we have no cell certificaservicn for some reason either. so we're trying to learn. we think that washington is okay. we think that philadelphia is okay. and then up in connecticut we're trying to find out if our west port and new haven shake shacks have electricity. sometimes that coastline gets hit hardest in terms of electricity. as soon as i hang up the phone with you, now that i found a land line, i will try to assess what's going on. we
to thinking about getting their first floors dry here in ocean city, maryland. martha: steve when you take a look at the damage around you, obviously as you point out they're discouraging people from coming back to try to get a look at their property, obviously looks as though everybody cleared out of that area you're in, right? >> reporter: right. this is the low area of ocean city, maryland, the downtown area. usually about 7,000 people here during the off-season. most of those, you know, storm experienced, pretty hardy people. most of them did get out. a few hundred did stay. no injuries here. the national guard was working throughout the night. the winds really felt like a hurricane, five, 6:00, 7:00 at night. we saw signs snapping off, small items of debris blowing through the air. it got pretty dicey last night. now it is just weird to stand in the middle of a road with a pretty good current coming down st. louis avenue here in ocean city. martha: boy, it remains to be seen the economic impact of all of this and these areas that have been hard hit already by unemployment and the toug
